Colorado Boulevard Poets Salon, August 2019

I was delighted to be featured in the Colorado Boulevard Poets Salon (note name change from "Poetry Corner") on August 21, 2019, hosted and curated by Kathabela Wilson.


Finding Our Way Home

Broken things in nature often renew themselves with a change in seasons, much in the same way that human interactions can be mended by spending time in nature, and in deeper communication with each other, with the world, and with ourselves.


nightly news . . .
a beaver changes
our world view


refugees
cross the border
in search
of better lives . . .
we open our arms


Though we may long for home, sometimes there are physical or emotional barriers to overcome before we take that first step...




(Bridges to Cross)



(Doors to Open)




(Roads to Travel)




(Fences to Tear Down)


"And where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts. The chain may lengthen, but it never parts." (Oliver Wendell Holmes)
